Japanese honeymoon itinerary

Hi all,

We are heading to Japan for our honeymoon from 1st September through to 11th September.

We arrive at 6pm on the 1st September, and are staying at Hotel Century Southern Towers (Shinjuku) for 3 nights, before heading to Kyoto on the 4th September.

While we are in Toyko, we really want to experience the food and culture of Japan and check out some traditional gardens, food hot spots and a temple or two.

I have come up with the following list of suggestions and ideas for places to go and see, I know we can't do all of it in 3 days so I am looking for advice on what is a must see based on our likes above and what we can miss, also what is easy to get to and what is impossible:

Tsukiji Fish Market

Sushi Dai and Sushi Daiwa

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Sensō-ji (Asakusa)

Meiji Jingu (Shibuya)

Kabukichō (red light Shinjuku)


Kabuki-za (Ginza - theatre)

Ryogoku Kokugikan (Sumo)

Sukiyabashi Jiro (is considered one of the best sushi restaurants??)

Yoyogi Park on a Sunday (Shibuya)

Botejyu, in Shibuya (best okonomiyaki??)

Ginza district

Ueno Ameyoko market (closed Wednesday)

Any other suggestions would also be welcomed ... thanks

1. Re: Japanese honeymoon itinerary

Generally, Kyoto has better gardens and temples than Tokyo. Since it's september, the focus should be on landscape gardens and rock gardens. So depending on what you have planned in Kyoto, you might skip Shinjuku Gyoen - http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2099_list.html .

Perhaps skip Ginza and visit the department stores in Shinjuku. Not sure if there is a good reason to visit Kabuki-za or Ryogoku Kokugikan if you are not seeing an event. But if you do visit Ryogoku, you might visit Edo Tokyo Museum.
